My computer is stupid. Of course it is still smarter, faster and more accurate than I could ever hope to be. But this does not stop it from being stupid. Things take forever to boot now. Programs freeze up. Popups abound in my once-pristine virtual work environment. I hate it. My laptop has a cracked screen that I haven't managed to get fixed yet, so I am stuck working on this blasted piece of crap. It used to be so shiney and new. So fast and sleek. I still think of it as a new computer. I got a flat screen monitor what they were all new and fancy, so it still LOOKS new. Even though my husband's comupter has a widescreen HD monitor that kicks this one's ass. I think this machine is going on 5 years old so I guess it has put in some hard time, as far as comupters go. I shouldn't knock it. But I will anyway. Stupid computer.
Can I afford to splurge on a new computer? Not this summer.
That means several hours of slogging through files and programs to delete all the stuff that is gumming up the works. **sigh**
